I don't know what to say about this yet, except that it seems to be indicative of big changes. One obvious preliminary observation that can be made, though, is that, here, the Turkish PM is righteously railing against, there, the immorality of Israeli killings. He's right, of course, but the irony is so thick you could only cut it with a nuclear-powered jack-hammer:

From when the Turkish state become a human rights defender? All of this is a big farce.
Peres has a better argument then Erdogan.
